Now, I wouldn't suggest you go out of your way to stay here, but my experience was nothing like some of the nonsense written by other reviewers.
Our room was pretty small, but the bathroom was smart and spotless and well equipped and we had a comfy four poster bed (with a mozzie net attached to the frame so it didnt drape over us or fall off the bed in the night). Nice balcony and roof garden for watching the sunsets.
Hostess was very nice and very helpful, gave us info about restaurants and things to do. We did get ambushed about their shop on the way out (but by the shop assistant not by the guest house owner). Food isn't really their thing other than at breakfast.
$50 including tax - there are smarter places in the Fort but I don;t expect they would be cheaper as Galle seems to have its own pricing structure!!
Taxi in their car to Colombo airport was again a bit pricey at 11,000R including the tip that the driver extracted. But it's a very comfy car and we got there in 3 1/2 hours!
